They also denounce that it means their "expulsion" from the Basque Country and Catalonia
MADRID, 11 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Five associations of the Civil Guard have criticized the investiture agreement agreed between PSOE and Junts because they consider that it "attacks" "judicial independence", while they have denounced that the investiture agreement represents their "expulsion" from the Basque Country and Catalonia.
In a joint statement, the representative associations of the Armed Institute, among which is JUCIL - the majority in the Council of the body - have shown their rejection of an amnesty law because they believe that it is "an attack" on the "judicial independence", thus breaking the separation of powers, "the basic pillar of a rule of law."
In an "absolute respect and defense of the Constitution", together with their "unwavering loyalty to the King" and their defense of the rule of law, they have censored the point of the agreement that establishes the creation of investigative commissions in Congress on judicial proceedings. and of the Security Forces and Corps during the Catalan process.
In this sense, the civil guards have explained that they feel "used as a bargaining chip" in the negotiations to form a Government, which will have "serious permanent consequences" for the "security of the citizens."
"The Civil Guard was already losing influence and now it is intended that it lose powers and expel the civil guards and their families from the Basque Country and Catalonia, an issue that the representative associations of the Civil Guard are not willing to tolerate," the text states. disseminated by the Civil Guard associations.
The joint statement from the five associations of the Civil Guard takes place one day after the general director of the Civil Guard, Leonardo Marcos, ordered an investigation to identify those responsible for the Pro-Guardia Civil Association (APROGC) after issuing a statement against the amnesty, alluding in it to their oath as soldiers to "shed blood" in defense of Spain and the Constitution.
As Benemérita sources have been able to confirm to Europa Press, the director gave instructions on Friday, hours after the statement was disseminated, for the Information Headquarters to identify those responsible for the association - which currently has no members on the Council of the Armed Institute-- and "initiate the disciplinary and/or criminal procedure that may exist due to the statement."
APROGC expressed in a letter its "deep concern" about the pact between PSOE and Catalan independence parties, recalling their oath "before the Flag as soldiers", for which they are "willing to shed even the last drop of blood in defense of sovereignty and independence from Spain and its constitutional order".
However, on October 29, the Civil Guard also announced that it had given the order to the legal services to study possible disciplinary and legal consequences against another association, JUCIL for "breaking the principle of political neutrality" by criticizing the "felony" which meant that the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, defended the amnesty before the Federal Committee of the PSOE.
